Lemon Kush Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Treeline Premier Dispensary (Vail)

Grade: B+

Type: Indica-dominant hybrid, possibly Master Kush x Lemon Joy

Price: $50/8th + tax

Appearance: (6.5/10)  The sample was of average density, not too chunky but not wispy by any stretch, with an overall pale green/orange cast.  There were long pale orange pistils everywhere, covering up much of the surface and hiding the trichomes.  The trichs themselves were mostly cloudy but were a little beat-up and not terribly impressive up-close.  Not a looker, but an average strain that didn’t show any real signs of stress aside from a few tiny seed pods scattered about.

Aroma: (6.5/10)  Lemons and a nutty, slightly vegetal quality (reminded one reviewer of almonds).  There was a slightly putrid twang that came out after grind as well, a bit of “poo” smell.  The smell was never very pungent though and led us to believe that the sample possibly had not seen quite enough curing time.

Taste: (7/10)  Lemony, with a flowery finish that carried notes of peppermint and grass.  The smoke was extremely smooth on the throat and wold be great for people who won’t want to cough.  The flush was superb, with parts of the bowl turning white early and finishing as a bleached white, fluffy ash.

Effects: An initial boost of energy was the main effect, but after about 30 minutes, the real potency arrived (definitely a creeper) and sent relaxation throughout the body and cast a bit of a haze over the mental proceedings.  The eyes were burning a bit and sensitive to light, with an increase in internal pressure.  Social interaction was pleasant and easy thanks to the elevated mood and mental energy.  Later in the duration it became more relaxing and the head effects died down for the most part — a nice, soft drop back to normalcy.

Duration: Medium, 2 – 2.5 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  A boost of energy that mostly remained in the mental areas, this strain also affected the eyes quite a bit, while elevating the mood and providing some solid muscle relaxation, especially later in the duration.

Overall: A good hybrid that our staff felt sat in the 60/40% Sativa-dominant range in terms of effect, this Lemon Kush did have some cirus qualities to the smell and taste but fell short in those areas overall.  The appearance was solid but unspectacular, and yet we all thoroughly enjoyed the effects, which were a moderate Sativa-leaning positivity and energy to go along with some Indica relaxation and body effects.  We’d like to see this strain at its full potential, because it was a very solid performer medically and provided the type of balanced relief that many patients prefer.

    Had like 3 samples through the day. Ive decided already its going in my garden. A nice relaxing head rush on secons and third hits usually. Then a nice body relaxation shortly after. Im not sure on duration really. Had a little cough behind it but otherwise beautifull flavor and quite stinky. It could be good for a number of things.
